"Cynar is a distinctive, 100% natural Italian aperitif made from a blend of artichoke leaves and carefully selected herbs infused in an alcohol base. The Liqueur contains cynarin, an ingredient in the artichoke proven to modify the taste buds so that any food or drink subsequently consumed tastes sweeter. Cynarin is also believed to have aphrodisiac qualities, improve digestion and aid in weight loss." ~Distillery notes

“This relatively gentle amaro supposedly tastes like artichokes. Instead, the palate finds mellow dark chocolate, walnut and allspice, finishing bittersweet.” ~Kara Newman
Cynar (Chee-nar) is a distinctive, 100% natural Italian amaro made from a blend of artichoke leaves and 13 carefully selected herbs infused in an alcohol base. It is considered a digestif, a traditional Italian spirit consumed after a meal to aid in digestion. Cynar's unique bitter and herbal taste can be enjoyed on the rocks, with soda or in any number of complex cocktails crafted by mixologists around the world. The name Cynar comes from "cynarin," which is a property found in artichokes.
Cynar is owned by Gruppo Campari.
